Description

SolarEdge SE3800H HD-Wave Inverter

SolarEdge’s SE3800H HD-Wave inverter breaks the mold of traditional inverters. This small, efficient and lightweight inverter enables simplified one-person installation and best-in-class efficiency. The record-breaking efficiency allows for more energy production, maximizing your investment in solar. Using power conversion technology based on distributed switching and powerfull DSP processing, the HD-Wave inverter is able to synthesize a clean sine wave that leads to a dramatic reduction in magnetics and heavy cooling elements. This reduces the physical size and weight of the inverter while offering superior efficiency compared to traditional inverter technology.

SolarEdge HD-Wave inverters are more cost-effective, lighter, and easier to install while still offering all the benefits of module-level monitoring and power optimization. The SE3800H HD-Wave inverter is ideal for smaller residential grid-tied systems.

About SolarEdge

The SolarEdge System pushes the envelope in the continuing endeavor to improve gridtie solar power generation. In a SolarEdge System, a DC to DC Power optimizer is paired with each solar panel in an array, allowing each one to operate independently at its highest efficiency.

Benefits to a SolarEdge System include:

  • 25% increase in energy production in systems with shading issues
  • Energy loss caused by module mismatch and partial shading is eliminated
  • Multiple arrays and module orientations are easily supported
  • Individual module monitoring, performance reporting and alerts
  • SolarEdge's proprietary SafeDC mechanism provides greater safety by shutting down module voltage during installation, maintenance, and firefighting
Fewer Constraints when designing your system:
  • There is no more need for string sizing
  • Temperature is not a factor because fixed string voltage ensures the inverter always operates at its peak efficiency voltage and prevents under-voltage power losses even on hot days
  • Panels don't all have to be facing the same way
  • Different string lengths can now be accommodated
  • Solar power ratings and technologies can vary
Compare the SolarEdge System to other systems

Unlike traditional gridtie systems, microinverter solar power systems have many of the same benefits listed above. Like SolarEdge Power Optimizers, microinverters control the output of each solar panel with Maximum Power Tracking. While microinverters optimize DC power and convert it to AC power, Power Optimizers offer DC to DC power optimization. One great advantage to SolarEdge Power Optimizers is that they can accommodate higher power solar panels and larger string sizes.

A traditional gridtie system is similar to a SolarEdge system in that it has a centralized inverter responsible for DC to AC conversion. Some prefer traditional gridtie systems because the inverters are more accessible than microinverters. Others prefer to use a system with proven technology that has been around awhile.

Monitoring Options

Monitoring is simple with the use of an ethernet cable or optional wireless gateway or GSM cellular modem. If you have any questions regarding this system, or would like to discuss a custom-made system, please contact us.
